Great tacos with a view.

Casual restaurant and bar overlooking the PLC Marina. Simple menu of fish or shrimp, Tacos or civiche, and panko fish and chips. Good portions, low prices for good fresh food. Cold beer, margaritas, and full bar.

This has been our new favorite since we discovered it a few months ago. Their fish & chips are the best around! The food has a hint of middle eastern with sesame-coating and falafels. Their shrimp tacos are my absolute favorite with a wonderful pineapple & cabbage chutney. Look out on the Marina from the upper palapa with a cerveza... More

Observation deck overlooking the marina is very pleasant setting for lunch. Shrimp tacos well done and copious. Fish and chips are fine with fish seasoned with panko and sesame. Worth a try.

We went to this spot with a large group. They were able to seat us upstairs on the rooftop location. What a view! We were there on Easter Sunday and it was not so crowded. I had never been to the San Jose Porto. This is a laid back area of the Cabo Area. A major boutique hotel is near... More

Delighted by the fish and shrimp tacos. Add some of the salsas include the soy and you have the makings of a delicious meal. You won't need to many of theses bad boys to fill you up. Just two is enough for me. They can use a little upgrade with the plastic furniture but the food makes up for it.

this place encapsulates why I love Baja. Delicious food fantastic service laid back welcoming atmosphere over looking the beautiful harbour and coastline .does life get any better than sitting under their roof top palapa drinking Pacifico or an excellent Sauvignon blanc eating their fab food?

We just visited The Druken Sailor and enjoyed every bit of it! The service is excellent and the food even better! It was probably some of the freshest tasting food we had all week. We dined here twice and enjoyed the fish/shrimp tacos and the fish sticks and lime fries. YUM! Must try the avocado pie for dessert - Oh... More

WE checked out this little place outside of the marina at Puerto Los Cabos. Very small but clean and neat. The fish tacos and ceviche were delicious. Very reasonably priced and friendly service.

Drunken Sailor was recommended by a number of people and we were glad we finally got there. The food was absolutely excellent, fresh and delicious and the staff were exceptional. One of us was a vegetarian and they accommodated that nicely. Then as we were leaving the 'jefe' came to tell us that the next time we come they would... More

My husband and I were sent here by my brother, who visits Cabo most years with his young family. He emphasized over and over again that it's the only reason they ever leave their hotel! We were not disappointed. The Drunken Sailor is a totally improbable-looking palapa on a dirt road in Puerto los Cabo, just outside San Jose del... More
